    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview

    The interviewers were really friendly. 2 rounds of phone interview. First round was mainly on the resume and a few questions on pipelining, hazards and clock domain crossing. This was for about 45min. The second round I had questions on cpp basics, sorting searching algorithm, again clock domain crossing, maximum frequency of operation, setup and hold time violations
